Pay less taxes and save more for retirement as a locums physician
Updated: Jul 7, 2019
I'm on call this weekend at the hospital but made time today to post a 3-minute summary of Chapter 14 of my new book, "Taxes and Business Expenses." Paying quarterly tax estimates for the federal and possibly state (depending upon which state you live in) and tracking business expenses are two essential tasks for the self-employed locum tenens physician. I recommend finding a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) who specializes in physician clients, especially those who do locums. Since you now run your own business, you want to take every tax advantage open to you as well as benefit from retirement options that aren't available to employed physicians. For more information, check out the details in "The Locum Life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens," available on Amazon and other booksellers.
